Putting Your Strenghts To Work

Using parents’ examples of their children’s grades, author and accomplished keynote speaker Marcus Buckingham highlights the fears associated with failure. After showing an example of a fairly good report card with one bad grade, Buckingham speaks about parent’s instinct to focus on that one failing mark, dismissing the good that their child is doing.

Believing that children are characterized by their parents, the speaker puts focus on the American school system, describing it as remedial. Despite its lack of challenge for many, the school systems’ fight for improvement with a focus on personal strength is not lost on Buckingham. While parents are often quick to dismiss their children’s success, focusing solely on their failures, the speaker encourages a new attitude: one that focuses on improvement and encouragement.
